Charlotte Forten Grimké (1837 - 1914)
A voice...I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in the right paths. Proverbs 4:11

Back: Charlotte Forten Grimki was born to a wealthy Free Black family in Philadelphia. Many of her relatives were active abolitionists and belonged to anti-slavery groups that helped escaped slaves. She studied literature and teaching in Salem, Massachusetts, and had a great love of reading. She also joined the Salem Female Anti-Slavery Society, and raised money, wrote and published poetry, spoke for the abolitionists, and arranged lectures. Eventually, Charlotte supported herself by teaching, first in Salem and later as the first Black teacher to join the American Civil War's Sea Islands mission in South Carolina. She volunteered as a nurse for an all Black regiment during the war and later worked for the U.S. Treasury Department, recruiting teachers and as a clerk. Charlotte married Francis J. Grimki, a Presbyterian minister, and was active in the life of the church, organizing a women's missionary group as well as continuing to support the anti-slavery cause. Throughout her life, she kept a diary that depicts the life of a Free Black woman and the work of the abolitionists during the Civil War.
